We have a couple of days of sun after several days of rain, so it was imperative for me to go walking… more so after all the candy I consumed for Halloween! =^P
There are several parks and lots of walking paths and lovely pedestrian paths on top of sidewalks, and I thought I'd share some images from some of my regular walking areas. By no means are these the only places I walk, but I'm just getting started. I have to build my stamina for all these darned hills, LOL!!
Here's a few scenes from my walks around the Ghost Lake neighborhood:
Whether I hike in the park, or walk along the road (the pic on the right was taken along a suburban road, believe it or not!) there is plenty of picturesque left in the dying season. You can see things are just drying out after the rain.
This next spot is at the top of the highest hill around here, and where I love to sit and breathe for a bit if I need a break. The good news is, I don't always have to use it! And a different view of the woods by the park close to that bench…
Finally, I want to include a few pics of typical streets and houses around the neighborhood, here's a pretty spot I passed by today on my rambles up and down a few residental streets:
Still a few trees left with colored leaves, though the wind and rain knocked most of the prettiest leaves down by this point. Still some brown leaves clinging to branches, because we didn't get the cool temperatures that bring the brightest colors out this year. We haven't had our first frost yet, and most nights its between 46 and 56 degrees F. Very mild autumn after a prolonged summer. However, I found a few spots along my walk today, and here's one example.
Eventually, I want to walk far enough to get a few pics of Ghost Lake and Blue Heron Lake, and also some of the more interesting bits of architecture here (mostly 1950s thru 1970s ranch styles, but later some more interesting modern coastal houses start springing up.)
The traffic starts to get more dense after 2pm, so I'm going to try to finish my walks by then, even if I don't make it out for a morning trod. I prefer the quiet, and there's more walkers out earlier in the day anyways– and less kids and teenagers!
